Beschreibung:

Contents: Chapters 1-5: English and Polish gender systems and their relation to sex - Male bias in English and Polish masculine generics - Sex-linked differences in the polish and English address systems - Sexism in education - Sexism and stereotyping.
A discussion of English and Polish gender systems, generic words, forms of address, referring expressions and other topics, provides evidence that in these two languages males and females are not treated equally. The main concern of this book is linguistic sexism. The data indicate that speakers of both languages treat male as the norm, attribute less desirable qualities to the speech and behaviour of women, stereotype women more than men, or simply make women linguistically invisible members of society.
